Garth is CEO and co-founder of Assurity and is responsible for leading our vision to challenge the way software quality is delivered. He has been involved in all aspects of software development, as well as the successful creation and growth of software development companies. 

Garth has 25 years’ experience in the ICT business. He started his career as a software developer before moving into software development management roles. He was responsible for creating the Wellington branch of a specialist software development company before taking over as General Manager. He was New Zealand Country Manager for Progress Software Corporation, an innovator in software development tools.

His wide background in sales, consultancy service and service delivery, combined with his leadership and strategy experience, gives him an in-depth understanding of the New Zealand ICT industry. It also allows him to understand where the industry needs to go in future – to challenge the way software is built and delivered.
